Transpose group of rows to column with formulas

In Excel, to transpose some groups of rows to columns, you need to create a unique list, and then extract all matched values of each group.

1. Select a blank cell which you will place the unique list, C1, and type Unique List into it, and then go to the adjacent cell, C2, enter 1 into it, and drag auto fill handle right to fill series as below screenshot shown:

2. Then in the cell C2, enter this formula =IFERROR(INDEX($A$1:$A$9, MATCH(0, COUNTIF($C$1:C1, $A$1:$A$9), 0)),0), and press Shift + Ctrl + Enter key, then drag fill handle down until zeros display. See screenshot:

In the formula, A1:A9 is the group names you want to transpose values by, and C1 is the cell you enter Unique List in above step, you can change these references as you need.

3. In cell D2, enter this formula =IFERROR(INDEX($B$1:$B$9, SMALL(IF($C2=$A$1:$A$9, ROW($A$1:$A$9)-MIN(ROW($A$1:$A$9))+1, ""), D$1)),0), press Shift + Ctrl + Enter key, then drag fill handle right until zeros appear, and then drag down to apply this formula to cells you need. See screenshot:

In the formula, B1:B9 is the values of each group you want to use, C2 is the cell you apply the first formula, A1: A9 is range with the duplicate group names, D1 is the first cell of the series you created in step 1.

    The first formula does not work for me - In my spreadsheet I have a list of names sorted alphabetically of names and using the formula for the Unique List in C2 results in zeroes from the first row onwards. I have checked the references and they seem OK - show the entire names list and Column C is 1, 2, 3 or more as per the row on the column C.
